Teenagers in the 1950 battle to be hip or be square. Johnny Depp plays Cry Baby, the leader of the coolest gang around. He falls for a Square (played by Amy Locane) but society wants to keep them apart. This movie has it's cool and funny joke here and there but the songs didn't do it for me.

A Grease wanna be that never really impresses or ranges boredom. Cry-Baby is one of the earlier works of Johnny Depp.

Quirky musical comedy. Sometimes it feels like a parody. Other times it's an odd, cliche embracing homage. There were some good jokes, but the music got old. Overall it's just okay.

I found Cry-Baby to be quite similar to the movie Grease, which I loved. Not much to say about this film, except that Johnny Depp was great amongst others. It was quite stereotypical, but the characters were engaging and interesting. A really enjoyable movie.

Fair movie with a few chuckles

"Allison" (Amy Locane) is an attractive Square who instantly falls for a juvenile delinquent "Wade 'Cry-Baby' Walker" when she sees him shed a single tear as he gets a shot at school and their eyes meet.

Both her grandmother (Polly Bergen) and her boyfriend (Stephen Mailer) try to keep her away from "Cry-Baby" and his gang. However, the gang accepts her to the point of giving her a "bad-girl" makeover.

After convincing the court to clear "Allison" of all chages after being taken into custody following a brawl, "Cry-Baby" is sent to jail, and a member of his gang loses custody of her (Ricki Lake) children (Jessica Raskin and Jonathan Benya). After some soul searching, "Allison" realizes just how much she cares for "Cry-Baby." She and the other (Drapes) go to the jail and put on one...
